The creative technology and its advancements

This article was exclusively written for the Sting by one of our passionate writers, Mrs Rachael Everly. The opinions expressed within reflect only the writer’s views and not The European Sting’s position on the issue.

The development in science and its ability to create and enhance the machines we work with has led us to this modern era. We can now perform tasks a lot quicker and the amount of production can now be met with the ever increasing demand more easily. The progression of technology has enabled many unrelated fields to mingle with each other and enabled the growth of multiple businesses. The boundaries have become so blurred that engineering skills are required to handle the equipment to make a movie which is an art form in itself. The creative people take the help of many computer software and hardware to enhance their digital art and make their work more precise.

With the increasing amount of people choosing creative fields over the more traditional routes of doctor and engineer, things are bound to become better. There are multiple progressions being made to help the creative industry be more productive and make their work easier. Some equipment may not have had as much lifecycle as expected before, but some progressions are such that they can be deemed as ahead of their time. Here are a few technologies that are a step ahead for the people involved in the creative field.

Surface Studio:

The Surface Studio by Microsoft is something that all digital artists had dreamed about. It is something that can help them create art with more ease of use in a lesser time span. It features a 28-inch screen that can enable you to have someone else work alongside you on the system. The hinge attached on to its either sides allows the screen to be rotated so that the designer feels comfortable while working. Everything you can find on any creative workstation has been installed in the software accompanying the hardware. The dial that comes with the screen lets you change brushes, colors and size of brushes through rotating the circular control. The screen works seamlessly with Windows 10, but many more advancements can be made with the passage of time.

3D Printing:

3D printing has come up as a revolution in many industries. Manufacturers are looking to adopt 3D printing in their production to reduce the cost of labor while also making the product development loss less time-consuming. These reasons are why 3D printing has made its way in the construction industry as well as the medical industry. Taking a hint from that, the creative industry has also used the equipment to develop much of its complicated props through a 3d printer. The prop is first designed on the 3D printer software then printed out with the help of this technology. This is great advancement as compared to the time-consuming designs and 3D models which took a lot more time than the 3D method. Furthermore, the objects can be a lot more detailed and have minimal errors due to everything created through machines.


Despite everything in the market being made to operate on touch sensors, this device is the exact opposite of the traditional modern day. The Loupedeck photo editing console has gotten a lot of special attention from photographers as it basically eases a lot of functions for them. It looks like a mixing desk yet it can edit photos specifically on Adobe Lightroom. However, it is made to be compatible with a Windows PC and a Mac making it a versatile hardware.


There are plenty of websites in existence today that are helping creative people from all over the world to promote and benefit from their work. Multiple websites sell the digital art created by new emerging artists, while the customer can also acquire services from freelance individuals. In addition to that, artists can take help of the ever developing social media technology that has helped people promote their work in a very easy way with limited finances. We have seen people setting up online shops on these platforms, but it is only a matter of time before the creative industry can also profit from this business and make transactions through social media.

Technology is progressing at an immense speed and it is only a matter of time when all of our everyday actions are performed by these advanced machines. This development will surely be a step in the right direction for creative individuals, as more and more platforms are provided to them to showcase their skills. With the future set to bring so much to the creative world, it is no wonder that more and more individuals are progressing towards this field now.
